DO NOT LEAVE MOROCCO WITHOUT VISITING ASILAH

Located in the South of Tangier, Asilah is a seaside town and an international haven for Art Lovers. See Video of ASILAH here

ASILAH

WHAT TO DO

> Wander Through The Medina

The Medina, adorned with inspiring artwork, can be explored by foot in just a few hours! It’s so calm and sweet that we do recommend to stay longer to enjoy its beauty.

 

 

> Enjoy the Beaches

You can enjoy the beaches located next to the Medina and the Port. 

The most beautiful beach in Asilah is located about 3km South of the Medina. It’s called Paradise Beach. You can reach this beach by taxi or horse-drawn carriage.

WHERE TO EAT

> Ali Baba

We have spent three days in Asilah and ate every day at Ali Baba! Why you gonna ask? Well, because it’s cheap and the food is pretty good! Even the pizzas are good (first time we found a good pizza in Morocco)!

We also tested the grilled sardines, the chicken tacos, the shawarma, and many more! We never paid more than 100 Dirhams (10 euros) for two people (drinks included). Easy Peasy!

WHERE TO FIND BOOZE

We didn’t drink a sip of alcohol in two weeks, well it changes after Bali!

The prices aren’t cheap, we bought two beers for 50 Dirhams (5euros)!

So there is a shop which only sells booze, you gonna find it on this street. See Picture below:

WHERE TO STAY

> DAR TABIA

For our first night in Asilah, we stayed at Dar Tabia.

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated, and really unique. The view over the roof terrasse gives a beautiful view over the Medina and the ocean. The hosts were so friendly, and the breakfast was perfect. I wish we could stay longer here.

You gonna find this guesthouse: 21, Rue Ben Kaddoul

For our second night in Asilah, we stayed at HOTEL ZELIS. 

The hotel is located right in front of the port of Asilah and 5 to 10 minutes walk to the Medina. You gonna find it Avenue Mansour Eddahbi.

The rooms are equipped with AC, TV, a private bathroom (with toilet accessories), the breakfast served as a buffet was garnished… and the staff is really nice.

GETTING AROUND ASILAH

CTM bus is not driving from Rabat to Asilah, so we took the train. We paid 88 Dirhams (8euros) per person for 3 hours ride.

Then from Asilah to Tangier, you can take the train again it gonna cost you about 32 Dirhams (for two people), and the bus about 10 Dirhams.

HOW LONG TO STAY IN ASILAH?

The inhabitants in Asilah are really friendly. The town is beautiful, everything is painted in white and blue. It’s a perfect place for relaxing few days. It’s a really charming town.

One thought on “DO NOT LEAVE MOROCCO WITHOUT VISITING ASILAH

  1. Looks like a nice place. When I went from tangier down south we went via Teteoaun and the Chefchaouen so we didn’t make it down the coast. I guess we missed out but on the other hand the other places was also nice. Morrocco just got so many places to visit.
